The first full week of preseason action wraps up Sunday morning, with an early 10 a.m. PT contest between the Indianapolis Colts and Philadelphia Eagles. I was probably going to have a thread for this game no matter what, but Frank Gore's new team makes it all the easier to go with it. We will not have crazy amounts of Colts coverage this year, but I do want to track Gore's new team given what Gore meant to 49ers fans. Most specifically, we'll be tracking Gore as he moves up the rushing leaderboard.
If Gore plays in Sunday's game, I doubt he sees more than a series worth of reps. And it is entirely possible he just doesn't play at all. We'll see when the game gets going at 10 a.m. PT on NFL Network. It is kind of an amusing coincidence that the Colts first preseason game is against the Eagles. Gore had reportedly agreed to a deal with the Eagles, but then changed his mind and joined Andrew Luck and the Colts. The snark on Eagles Twitter today is pretty funny.
We'll have plenty more content about the 49ers preseason opener against the Houston Texans, but in the meantime, this can serve as an open thread for Colts-Eagles.
